I was told by my tranny guy that, with the TQ converter all the way back engaged in the pump, there should be no more than an 1/4" gap between the converter mount lugs and the flex plate.
If the gap is greater, according to him, it is acceptable to use spacers (washers) on the bolts, placed between the converter and the flexplate. This is to keep the converter "ears" fully engaged in the pump.
Again, I'm not a tranny guy. This is what I was told by a tech who has done trannys for many years...
